Bronze Mushroom sculpture by Anne Rochette
This first HD photo shows a statue of a mushroom, which is part of a contemporary art installation called Comptine, which in English translates as Rhyme or Nursery Rhyme, and made of polychrome bronze and painted, this is just one element of the sculpture group by Anne Rochette.
Modern art sculpture in Jardin des Tuileries
It was actually in 1998 through the French President, Jacques Chirac, that modern art works were starting to be installed within the Jardin des Tuileries to make this even more of an unusual open air museum and free public park, which was followed in the year 2000 with works from living artists including this contemporary art composition of Comptine.

Now the Comptine sculpture group was actually produced in 1999, yet it was in the year 2000 that these were installed within the Tuileries Gardens in one of the parterres, or groves, called the Potager, which in English translates to Vegetable Garden, and as you can see in this photograph it has been maintained since and takes the Jardin des Tuileries back to its roots when some of the garden was originally used for growing food for the royal family.
Orange Comptine sculpture by Anne Rochette in Tuileries Gardens
Here you can see another polychrome painted bronze sculpture that is part of the Nursery Rhyme sculpture group, which as we mentioned before, was produced by Anne Rochette who was born in France in 1957 and graduated from the Ecole Nationale Superiore des Beaux Arts in Paris at the age of 22, and initially went travelling, then obtained a Masters in Art at the New York University, which is also the city where she had her first solo exhibition.
Info plaque for Comptine sculptures in Jardin des Tuileries
Yet here you can see a close up showing a tourist information plaque on the ground providing details about this contemporary art work, that was commissioned by the French state and installed within the Tuileries Gardens in collaboration with the landscape architect Pascal Cribier, who started working on the renovation and redevelopment of the gardens from 1991 along with Louis Benech.

But Anne Rochette has also become a world recognised and renowned French sculptor who has travelled to many different places exhibiting different works and providing public commissions, with Nursery Rhyme being one of them, and having returned to her native country in 1990, she also started teaching at the School of Fine Arts in Paris from 1993, even though she continues to produce her own sculptures along with organising her own solo exhibitions.
